time to stay steady


devotional post #2021

Luke 17:28-31

Luk 17:28 In the same way, just as it was in the days of Lot, people were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building;
Luk 17:29 but on the day Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from the sky and destroyed them all.
Luk 17:30 It will be the same on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
Luk 17:31 On that day, anyone who is on the roof, with his property in the house, must not come down to take them away, and in the same way the person in the field must not turn back.

time to stay steady

Lot’s wife is later mentioned by Jesus here, and her story informs the warning that Jesus gives. She was warned to flee Sodom, but turned back, and was turned into a pillar of salt. Jesus had been warning his disciples that there would be a long period of waiting before his second coming. They were to remain steady and committed to him during this time, and not be tied to the things of this world, so that they welcome him as soon as the clouds break and he appears in the sky.

LORD, show us how to remain unswervingly committed to you.
